Visitor Service

Visit DW in Bonn or Berlin

Are you a media professional or student of a media related field? As a stakeholder of international cooperation you are wondering how Germany's international broadcaster works?

DW, Germany’s international broadcaster, offers unbiased information for free minds. How does an international news service counter the evolving threat of disinformation and "fake news" in the media? What measures are being taken at DW to strengthen press freedom abroad, promote freedom of opinion and reach our target audience even in censored markets?

To explore these and other questions, DW Visitor Service offers each visiting group a tailor-made program and connects them with experts specific to the topic of interest.

Schedule an event

You can visit us in Bonn or Berlin. We also accept invitations to visit your institution, provide information about DW and share our experiences with you.

Visiting programs

Our programs are designed to be interactive. We engage our audience and respond to their questions. We begin by providing an overview of our company, our legal mandate, and journalistic offerings.

Meet with experts

You will have the opportunity to discuss topics of specific interest with one or several of our qualified experts from more than 100 nations. With our multiplatform output in 32 languages, we can also try to arrange a visit to the news desk of your native language.

Behind the scenes

Get to know a piece of German history on a guided tour through the Schürmann Building in Bonn or our TV location in the former AEG building in Berlin and take a look behind the scenes of our studio operations. Depending on the daily production and broadcasting processes, you can attend a tv production or a live broadcast. We'll be happy to explain the editorial processes, news operations and distribution of our programming.
